Everything around me is dark.
I don't know where I am and I can't remember what happened to me or why I am here all alone. I just have the faded memory that some men, wearing all black, have kidnapped me, first covering my mouth so that I couldn't shout and ask for help, then forcing me to close my eyes. In that moment I got hit in the head.
I don't remember anything else, but I need to find out where I am soon. I have to run away from here right away.
An image of my dad crosses my mind this right moment. How would he react now? He lost my mother last year; I feel the men that kidnapped me are the same that did with her. They even killed her then.
My mother was so brave; she had probably fought hard with them to try to run away, so killing her was probably their only way to make her stay quiet.
And now my dad is losing me too. No, I'll go back to him, I'll feel his arms hugging me tight soon; I know it.
I stand up. I'm gonna get to know more about this place; I won't get some darkness panic me. As I walk slowly straight ahead, step by step, I bump into something that seems a wall. I can't say what it is properly, I can't see anything, but that thing is wet, cold, and seems to be made of stone.
Where am I?
I start trembling and fall. I have to keep calm, I have to stay strong; if I react like this I'm not going to make it at all. I lay my head on my knees, this time I can't prevent tears from falling.
Suddenly I hear some footsteps, someone is moving, slowly, and right towards me. My heart is beating so fast that is going to explode in a while.
I'm left breathless.
Who's coming this way? Is he or she coming to kill me, now?
I'm still young, I still have a long life in front of me, don't kill me, don't do this to me.
The footsteps suddenly stop, there is nothing but silence all around, again. I hate not to see anything; then I remember I have a lighter with me in my pocket. I could turn it on, and see who my enemy here is, and find out where am I. I just need to be a bit brave, like my mother.
I take the longest breath I can and turn the lighter on. I don't see anything or anyone at first, so I stand up. The steps begin again; they're moving more quickly, they are about to reach me. I'm standing still, doing anything.
A figure appears right in front of me, in front of the light. He's not who I actually thought to find in here, a monster would be nicer than him. I notice that there's even some blood on his face.
"Turn it off," he whispers angrily. He reaches his hand out towards me and throws the lighter away, who knows where.
I'm in the middle of the darkness again, but this time I'm not alone; I'm with my enemy number one.
